should step down there were no i'm here to defend the democratic choice of all people when we voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike one door you chose and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. while one wind or calls for help washington is attempting to cripple caracas financially in a bid to ice nicolas maduro the u.s. state department even went so far as to break journalists who didn't agree with the official american stance on business will we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one quite go as the opposition leader or the south proclaimed president. neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty
12:04 pm
countries recognize as interim president of venezuela to get this straight you're complaining because. you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well it's almost like a complaint since three weeks he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president though as you say fifty other countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the militia so they're fifty countries is not even close that. it's the time to act in support of democracy and that news coverage of calling them the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage more functions to work we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator or pressure was stepped up further on the venice willing government this week let's
12:05 pm
go through it u.s. vice president mike pence announce that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas maduro would have their u.s. visas revoked and then in washington special envoy to venezuela elliott abrams ended up sanctioning third parties for their support of the venice will and leader of the u.s. national security advisor john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venice when. the whole region should stand against caracas a lot from iraq to go through. the united states is exceptional literally balland by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't
12:06 pm
now and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and a zoo l.-a and
12:07 pm
a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and say no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here america knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states will use diplomacy and work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of
12:08 pm
iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr maule neuro would turn in his grave
12:09 pm
if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizes what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn continents oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially a literal any possibility of democracy united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another supporting brutal military regimes this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron rule. moving on more civilians have been evacuated from terror
12:10 pm
group islamic states last pocket of resistance in syria the village of beit goos near the iraqi border it comes as hundreds of i still fighter surrendered to u.s. forces which are preparing an assault among the women and children who have a scapegoat goes ahead of the showdown there are relatives of to have this indeed some of the eyes and wives are clearly refusing to believe the caliphate is due. but the village of bikers has been a focal point of the syrian democratic forces for several weeks despite donald trump repeatedly the clearing victory over isel america's top general saying is that fight is far from over it lead to trying to talk us through it. have a look at but who's right there near the border with iraq we didn't really hear
12:11 pm
about it in the course of syria's civil war misery now's the time it is really being called the last remaining eyelet of territory in syria about to be stormed by u.s. backed kurdish troops we expect a fierce battle later at the end of the civilian evacuation given the will remain in bag who's of the ones brimming with the few jihadi ideology and the ones who is not an option indeed we've seen crowds of escaping civilians and even jihad as who did choose to surrender the current say they want to make sure all innocent people make it out of the goos before the guns go off but the main still be trapped in there either not able or not keen to escape just a short while ago though donald trump was bragging about his army and allies crushing islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it
12:12 pm
was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however we've kept hearing absolutely different takes from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the ground the head of u.s. central command is sure i still hasn't surrendered he's confident it's not been defeated instead the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and wait for the right time to make a comeback reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over we have won against isis now we've won and at least for now president trumps proud announcement that the american soldiers were pulling out makes less and less sense the. well out would have definitely scored mr trump some
12:13 pm
valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this but google's thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of ice and see a resurgence you know are winning out we'll come back if we have to anyway whatever happens next depends on what ignites and this small but vital strip of land known as booze well as general votel testified in congress recently and he said that. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have farms we believe that farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date trying to later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's one hundred ways to count troops and that may not include
12:14 pm
a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces obviously advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. it's been a tragic day in east africa an ethiopian airlines plane carrying one hundred forty nine passengers and eight crew done for the kenyan capital has crashed shortly after takeoff thirty five nationalities were on board the pilots had reportedly been given permission to land the plane again after he said he was experiencing
12:15 pm
difficulties double quarter told me more hear hear. the latest thing that ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o. has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors the majority being from kenya canada and the e.u. now this was one of ethiopian airlines regularly scheduled flights although the plane crashed only six minutes after takeoff it took emergency services two whole hours to get to the site now this is especially shocking because reports were saying that it only crashed about fifty kilometers south of the takeoff zone at the airport one witness even told the b.b.c. that the result of this delay was because the fire was so strong that people were unable to approach the plane on the crash site the office of the prime minister already reacted to this on twitter they said that they give their condolences to the families of those who lost their lives on this plane. the big question is of course the cole is what happened to do we have any kind of going to be
12:16 pm
investigation of course but but early stages of why this happened yet well that's another surprising detail hours later and we still have no details available as to what caused this crash in the first place it's one of the newest model so that's another aspect we have to bring in here it's actually called the boeing seven thirty seven max and it's a new addition to the theo be in fleet only from back in july of last year and a lot of people are drawing parallels to the plane crash that occurred last year in indonesia with lion air's model of the same plane the boeing to the boeing seven thirty seven max and just to give you a couple details about that it was a very similar situation the plane crashed in indonesia only several minutes after taking off and over one hundred eighty passengers were killed now boeing also reacted to that and to this situation back event last year boeing issued a warning year later about this model of aircraft saying that the seven thirty
12:17 pm
seven max might have a tendency to do an. nosedive against the will of the pilot of the plane and boeing airplanes actually also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. get to more of sunday's news no were six back to base gathered in central moscow demanding the protection of internet freedoms today after lawmakers gave their initial approval to a bill granting the authorities greater control over what sites are accessible artie's medina culture the reports. came to reported on this rally here and central moscow people are gathered to defense of the freedom of russia but ironically r.t. wasn't allowed to look at this as the organizers of this event told us that we belong to the media that they do not support so this is the only way i can report
12:18 pm
on what's happening back there by standing here i can only tell you that i see cons of people in many mostly young people we saw here i came with the flocks as they were holding different slogans old and damning the rest of the bill that was proposed by russian officials now the event organized by a group of activists was earlier approved by moscow city hold more of the news week that was coming up including why young british tourists are shunning the u.s. stay with us. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be
12:19 pm
successful very critical of dying time to sit down and talk. when lawmakers manufacture consent instant of public wealth. when the rooming closest to protect themselves. in the financial merry go round be the one percent told. to ignore middle of the room signals. in the real news room.
12:20 pm
twenty minutes into the program welcome back a doll top model of hitler wearing lipstick and long eyelashes has been spotted in madrid and barcelona on the side of a bus the fear immobile is part of a campaign by ultra conservative catholics who are unhappy about spanish laws on gender violence which they claim discriminate against men now the bus tour other several spanish cities in fact in the run up to international women's day on friday the campaign was organized under the house to stop f.m. and nazis which is how the organizers refer to certain types of feminists its spokesman explained why. the gender roles are really very. very lost because the discriminate men from women in the penalty also the old discriminate all saw in the press and in a sense it's very keen and
12:21 pm
a symbol of equality that is in our constitution what we are asking is for already don't this what's always leave some in the us but in fact there are not a lot of it but they are asking for supremacism in a way so the bus the campaign is seeking their repeal of a two thousand and four law on gender violence under which special courts rehabilitation centers were created to protect women at risk not people on twitter who well they have been on firing back coming up in fact with a few of their own alternative bus slogans accusing their campaign of being very behind the times body confidence of the kids be morale is things the hitler bus fails thing get its point across. personally think that it's quite hard to take a group an organization seriously when they knew someone that has inflicted so much
12:22 pm
pain and many people also has quite a hard to just really picture understand what the organizations trying to depict and i don't think he's the he's the right person to use the base of this campaign especially what they're trying to do i don't need to do that because i do think is a bit of an insult to women especially because of what he was about and what he thought about women in particular and just aren't trying to do it and i do agree that something needs to be done but again violence is for men and women domestic violence is for many when it happened both ways so maybe it's not the right present and down do you think it might be slightly insulting to men directly. not for young people in the u.k. kicking a trip across the pond is becoming less than one attraction with many blaming donald trump for making the united states on the cool polly boyko decided to find out. the transatlantic road trip they used to be most students dream holiday things like route sixty six or recreating the journeys of the beatniks from the
12:23 pm
road or feminist fugitives like bella and louise but according to the u.k.'s biggest youth travel operator the kids of today no longer consider the us a cool destination backpacking trips and holidays over to america are down twenty three percent from the start of the year and the travel operators are blaming it on something called the trump slump they say that socially conscious millennial is an generation's ias a shining america because their perch off by none other than the president himself would you shun would you shun a trip to the u.s. because of trouble yeah i can understand why people boycott and think so would you very soon mark on holiday would it be kind of top of your list of where you want to go not the top from a line on him i don't know she's never really appealed to me and especially with all the poses going on as well it's not like there's
12:24 pm
a no you prefer to go some are a bit more. culturally appropriate. would you want to go to america or just donald trump but you're not going to personally so you're not pull the i'll go america which you. do you go to trip you have the opportunity to go to america you still go you know like i wouldn't care but don't try to i don't like what he does but like i like to go but it's probably not to my lists for me just so we money was maybe i'd like to try but i think i think going for a holiday that is very different going over there to live all i see is migration and everything and so i really got to choose to live i think the best thing going on is quite intense and i think i want to but then again you know the whole thing is like parts and stuff so you know it's already great i mean really that bastion of hard even here to say. you know coming to. because of the political situation so i don't think that that really should have an impact on people choosing a whole day this nation. still still travel. america's great i don't know about in
12:25 pm
denver colorado or where we're from but i can tell you i don't like very much if you are in from the u.s. would you go to the u.s. on holiday probably not really right now. i'd probably just want to stay here where where i know what's going on where there's no chaos whatsoever and it's still very very calm on advertising hit like you know. ok i'm going to america ok dollars are a lot for not but next we're heading behind bars for a sobering look at america's prison system incarcerating us it's a tough one and it begins moments.
12:26 pm
because this is a stick for the water bottle found in the stomach of the fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad ones they have the litter box they're throwing this away industry should be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. i'm a. stay at
12:27 pm
a special projects funding me. on. the mountains of waste only grow while. i was in los angeles. march of one thousand nine. hundred. i understand she areas not. and i could prove. she had me but just to savor all. so she wouldn't do this. they were under.
12:28 pm
i could not plead guilty to everything that they accused me of. not guilty. i was convicted for conspiracy dire received twenty four year sentence there's a way in which you have to see the conspiracy law as a very important tool of law enforcement if the crime is selling drugs and some men in miami cells twenty kilos of cocaine to an undercover agent do want to ask who is the seller working where does the money go if the money goes back to a drug lord in colombia. who's going to keep the proceeds he's in the conspiracy even though he actually wasn't there when this sale took place he's a conspirator and so part of the goal of the conspiracy law is to make sure that
12:29 pm
the most senior level all of those in the criminal organization are justly punished the problem is when you flip it around and the lowest level people in the criminal organization get punished just like give the keys. and that's the big problem in the way in which the conspiracy laws are being applied. i know end up in federal prison in dublin california i realized that i would need to spend a lot of time in the law library and i needed to film from a arise my sound my case and everything that had gone wrong if you furthered the conspiracy one step you're guilty for everything in the conspiracy no matter when you entered the conspiracy it could have been on the last day. because i had collected some money on i technically was guilty of conspiracy. held
12:30 pm
responsible for everything that everybody else had done and my sentence my twenty four years was established based on the sum total of all the acts the thing that sandy had manufactured that's where my ears came from my ears did. things that came from three point seven million tablets of x. the thing that he had manufactured puts me on the chart at this lab just twenty four years that's how a judge sentences you based on a chart the way the sentencing laws apply to conspiracy. being subject to being punished for all the conduct that everybody in the conspiracy has been involved in. so the idea of proportional punishment can be lost if this triggers a mandatory sentence to add insult to injury while i'm incarcerated for twenty four year.
